LEGO Star Wars 8017 Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter :

My 7 12 months old son saved up his pocket money to get this ship for his lego selection. He crafted it by himself in two days. This product is shaped specifically like the film and he loves it. On the other hand its wings are a wrestle to stay on when you play with it. The cockpit is far too little so darth vader can not really go in with his cape on or you have to bend it but he definitely likes the way the cockpit opens up.

Star wars fanatics, this is for you. I appreciate the authentic star wars trilogy (episodes iv, v, vi), and i adore lego, so what is actually improved than a lego tie fighter?this package has a fair quantity of pieces, and you might be creating 3 big elements (2 wings, and the overall body). Most effective little bit of this complete package, the darth vader minifig, entire with red lightsaber and cape. The fighter even has a holder in the underbelly for the lightsaber which is really cool. The playability of this toy is fairly insignificant, there is only the one opening hatch to position vader inside, and in there is extremely tedious, just a person flat piece of lego for his control panel, little bit of a shameall in all, this is wonderful for any lego or star wars lover, good addition to any selection.

‘we’ll have to wipe out them ship-to-ship. ‘. Lego celebrate 10 a long time of star wars kits this 12 months and begin the collection with a extremely welcome update of darth vader’s sienar fleet programs tie advanced x-one. The design is a wide improvement above the preceding releases in kits 7150 or 10131 and they have at last completed away with the dreadful blue highlights and give the ship a much more exact colour scheme of greys and blacks with some awesome detailing as effectively. The fighter options an opening cockpit which hinges the total front window section upward to reveal a seating location for vader. There is a clip on the underside aft hull which you can clip his lightsabre on to. A nice touch in the redesign are the missile launchers just to just about every side of the cockpit. They are the conventional flick-missile kind and there are two levers in the higher aft hull which you force ahead to hearth them. The tie superior x-one is 16 cm prolonged (duration of wing), 18 cm extensive (wing to wing) and ten cm tall (reduce to higher wing edge). The darth vader determine that will come with the kit is the same as the 1 from 2008’s 10188 dying star and he comes equipped with his trademark red lightsabre. The kit contains 241 pieces (not such as figures and weapons), has four decals to apply and takes about fifteen minutes to construct.Here are the specifications for the LEGO Star Wars 8017 Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter:

  • Year: 2009
  • Number of parts: 251

As envisioned with lego products, it was very attractive for my 6 y previous son. We have had loads of enjoyment accomplishing it.

Son beloved it, but selected elements maintain coming off. My son beloved performing this and the guidance ended up not far too undesirable to adhere to. The only difficulty is that as it has components that hold off, these can effortlessly get caught while he is playing online games with it and then he leave the whole factor, as he desires to play not develop it all over again.

  • Star Wars Lego – doesn’t quite do what it says on the box

Strong toy, doeesn’t disintegrate as shortly as a child picks it up, as can be the scenario with some star wars lego kits. Doesn’t get lengthy to put with each other, so generating it a rapid develop (not a very good matter if you get most of the satisfaction from the make).

Purchased this darth vader tie fighter spaceship for my sons fifth birthday. He is a large lego supporter and enjoys starwars way too, significantly darth vader. Personally i experienced a whole lot of fun encouraging him put it alongside one another and the minimal darth vader figure is impossibly lovable.Though, getting lego, it can appear aside very easily, i sense it teaches kids how to be thorough with fragile points and if all else fails they can place it back together once again.


One thought on “LEGO Star Wars 8017 Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter :”

  1. Star wars fanatics, this is for you. I love the original star wars trilogy (episodes iv, v, vi), and i love lego, so what’s better than a lego tie fighter?this kit has a fair number of pieces, and you’re building 3 major parts (2 wings, and the body). Best bit of this entire kit, the darth vader minifig, complete with red lightsaber and cape. The fighter even has a holder in the underbelly for the lightsaber which is pretty cool. The playability of this toy is rather minor, there’s only the one opening hatch to place vader inside, and in there is extremely boring, just one flat piece of lego for his control panel, bit of a shameall in all, this is fantastic for any lego or star wars lover, great addition to any collection.

    Star wars lego – doesn’t quite do what it says on the box. I bought this for my 8 year old nephew and he followed the instructions and put it all together (with hardly any help at all) over the course of one afternoon / evening. There are loads of pieces, some very small, all leading up to the final star wars figure. Perhaps my nephew hadn’t pressed some pieces down quite hard enough but, even when i put it back together, the moveable wing parts and darth vader’s chamber came off too easily. It wasn’t easy for him to rebuild it and he was rather disheartened. It was a bit disappointing from that viewpoint as he’d worked so hard on it and yet it came apart so easily whenever you tried to actually play with it or move the ‘moveable parts’. Great for the building aspect, good instructions, but not so great for the post build playing aspect – build it then just look at it.
    1. Lego star wars 8017 darth vader’s tie fighter. My son loves this and i have to say its very realistic , well made and functional , if a little pricey, however i guess in demand products always are. Would recommend it to all kids who are star wars fans.
      1. Birthday present for 5 year old. The service and supply of this product was brilliant it came very quickly and there were no problems at all so thanks amazon for great service. My 5 year old nephew was delighted with his present, he had raved about wanting one of these for months. He and his brother disappeared with it and not a sound was heard from them all afternoon so i can only guess that they had loads of fun and it was a huge success. Lego is generally educational even if it’s teaching them to take care of things and look after the small parts or they get lost. Overall a very happy little boy.

    Bought this darth vader tie fighter spaceship for my sons 5th birthday. He is a massive lego fan and loves starwars too, particularly darth vader. Personally i had a lot of fun helping him put it together and the little darth vader figure is impossibly cute.Although, being lego, it can come apart easily, i feel it teaches kids how to be careful with fragile things and if all else fails they can put it back together again.
    1. It is good for flying around the house and it is great fun to assemble. It is quite rare to find a darth vader and a red light sabre. I like the picture on the front of the box. It makes me imagine that i am really there. It took me an hour and a half to assemble it and it was good fun. I wanted it because none of my friends had it before me. I think that it is second only to death star as a model because it does not have many figures to assemble. However death star is a lot more expensive because it costs more that £100.
      1. Son loved it, but certain parts keep coming off. My son loved doing this and the instructions were not too bad to follow. The only issue is that as it has parts that hang off, these can easily get caught while he is playing games with it and then he leave the whole thing, as he wants to play not build it again.

    Sturdy toy, doeesn’t disintegrate as soon as a child picks it up, as can be the case with some star wars lego kits. Doesn’t take long to put together, so making it a quick build (not a good thing if you get most of the enjoyment from the build).

    As expected with lego products, it was very appealing for my 6 y old son. We’ve had lots of fun doing it.
    1. My 7 year old son saved up his pocket money to buy this ship for his lego collection. He built it by himself in 2 days. This model is shaped exactly like the film and he loves it. However its wings are a struggle to stay on when you play with it. The cockpit is too small so darth vader can’t really go in with his cape on or you have to bend it but he really likes the way the cockpit opens up.
      1. “we’ll have to destroy them ship-to-ship. “. Lego celebrate 10 years of star wars kits this year and start the collection with a very welcome update of darth vader’s sienar fleet systems tie advanced x-1. The model is a vast improvement over the previous releases in kits 7150 or 10131 and they have finally done away with the dreadful blue highlights and give the ship a more accurate colour scheme of greys and blacks with some nice detailing as well. The fighter features an opening cockpit which hinges the whole front window section upward to reveal a seating area for vader. There is a clip on the underside aft hull which you can clip his lightsabre onto. A nice touch in the redesign are the missile launchers just to each side of the cockpit. They are the standard flick-missile type and there are two levers in the upper aft hull which you push forward to fire them. The tie advanced x-1 is 16 cm long (length of wing), 18 cm wide (wing to wing) and 10 cm tall (lower to upper wing edge). The darth vader figure that comes with the kit is the same as the one from 2008’s 10188 death star and he comes equipped with his trademark red lightsabre. The kit comprises 241 pieces (not including figures and weapons), has 4 decals to apply and takes about 15 minutes to build.
